Neck dissection

Neck dissection

A surgical procedure, neck dissection is an open or minimally invasive procedure that removes lymph nodes and neck tissue, while a partial or full larynopharyngectomy removes tumors from the larynx (voice box) or the pharynx (throat).

This is performed when cancer has spread to the lymph nodes in the neck.
